The world’s oldest known bird has hatched a chick at the age of 70.
The bird , a Laysan albatross named Wisdom, gave birth to her 40th chick.
The new chick was hatched last month on Midway Atoll, a small scrap of land 1,300 miles north west of Hawaii. Wisdom then returned last month with her mate to hatch the chick.
Wisdom was first banded in 1956. Banding is a small item placed on the bird’s leg, so when they are spotted they can be tracked.
It was initially thought that Laysan Albatross birds had a life span of 40 years, but Wisdom is now teaching researchers more about the species.
